Tory MS complains about Welsh Gov ‘not issuing a statement’ to congratulate Queen

A Tory MS has complained about the Welsh Government after it “chose not” to “table a statement” to congratulate the Queen.

Ardent monarchist Darren Millar, expressed his disappointment during a debate which was called by the Welsh Conservatives to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the hereditary head of state’s accession to the British throne.

The Conservative politician, who represents the constituency of Clwyd West, lavished praise on the “longest reigning monarch in all of British history”.

He also told Senedd members that “all of her parliaments should recognise” this and “ensure action is taken to recognise their thanks”.

Mick Antoniw, the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution, told Millar that the Welsh Government would be tabling its own motion, and that it offered its congratulations to the monarch.

Plaid Cymru MS Rhys ab Owen has previously criticised the Tories for using the Welsh Parliament’s debate time to discuss the topic, suggesting it would be better spent debating the “cost of living rising or on the health service”.

‘Record-breaking monarch’

Darren Millar said: “She is a record-breaking monarch, she is the longest reigning monarch in all of British history and it’s absolutely right that all of her parliaments should recognise this fact and ensure action is taken to recognise their thanks and congratulations in their order papers.

“It is of note, however, that the Welsh Government chose not to table either a statement or a debate on this important milestone in her majesty’s reign, they did on the 60th for the diamond jubilee, the then first minister Carwyn Jones tabled a government debate and that was very welcome indeed.

“Unfortunately no such thing has happened this time around which is why we have used our opposition time, as the Welsh Conservatives, loyal opposition for her majesty here in this parliament.”

No Plaid Cymru Senedd members made a contribution to the debate.

Clearly in ‘Millar Land’ this is the single most important news of the day, if not decade, but for those who remember/know him in Abergele, it is nothing whatsoever of any importance.

I’ve nothing against the queen per se but why should we celebrate a sovereign who’s family built a ring of castles around our country to control us and tried to eradicate us completely in 1536?

I think 🤔 you may find ER2 has about as much link to Edward1 as thee and me Steve.

i would suggest a look 👀 up the activities of the Hanover “ electors “ ( minor princelings ) to see how busy our hard working Germanic head of states’ ancestral family were in a range of historic exploits ⚠️

Please. How much will it cost us to build an isolation and re-education camp for all these Tory nutters on Ynys Enlli? If Llywodraeth Cymru won’t pay, can we start a crowd-funder?

My initial reaction was to think “I just don’t get people like Millar. Why is he using debating time in a national parliament to peddle propaganda?” But if looked at for what it is, namely yet another desperate attempt to counter the weakening relevance of unionism while at the same time firing another broadside at the Senedd Cymru, it begins to make a kind of sense.
